Every year, Lake Erie Yearly Meeting gathers to conduct business, worship together, and experience the Spirit’s movement among us. The four days also include workshops, worship sharing, programs for children and teens, a plenary program, and many opportunities for getting to know Friends throughout the yearly meeting and from various Quaker organizations. Books of interest to Friends are available for sale. We are eager to welcome newcomers and greet old Friends. See you in Bluffton!

Sowing the Seeds of Friendship
Friendship is a gift that allows us to experience love beyond the boundaries of our families. In friendship, there is opportunity for deep listening as well as deep sharing. In friendship, there is the capacity for honesty tempered with compassion and kindness.
This year we invite you to bring your crafts, pictures of your grandkids, and board games. We encourage you to slow down and sit a spell, sharing your stories, your heartaches, and your joys. At this YM, let’s rediscover the little “f” friend in all of us.
Our plenary speaker, Merry Stanford, will share her experiences in helping meetings to grow, diversify, problem-solve, and heal.
More information and registration forms are in the Spring 2015 Bulletin.
2016 dates: July 28-31
